Has anyone else experienced radio stations disappearing from the "All Stations" listing. Also any word on getting RDS in a future software release.

I don't really use the FM radio and when I do I use the presets so I can't really comment on your problem.

I believe that if the station signal gets too weak it is dropped from the list of All Stations. This is constantly changing as you drive around and signals get stronger or weaker. You can tune in to any station using manual mode or preset mode, but the All Stations mode will only display those stations with the strongest signals for that moment.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Make sure you have the latest nav software installed. The current disc is V25. Second, you may want to have the dealer update your radio under Service Measure B65-209-04 (from 4/30/04). Nav radios have knows issues with fm reception and losing radio presets.
